Assistant Undersecretary of the Roads Department at the Public Works Ministry Eng. Ahmad Al-Hassan said Monday that the study of imposing fees for usage of some roads aims at developing the road traffic system.

In an interview with the Kuwaiti newspaper "Al-Rai", Al-Hassan noted that there will be different alternatives roads free of charge.

On the new roads projects, Al-Hassan confirmed that the plan includes a number of roads that will be open and completing the west part of Jamal Abdulnasser road, which will be delivered during the first quarter of next year.

He pointed out that 26 road projects will be implemented in the near future.

In this regard, he referred to a five-year agreement to be assigned to the consultant who developed the city of Abu Dhabi to follow up the projects.

@dan.. u don't live and earn from Indian govt or pay tax from your salary to complain about India.. don't be so stupid..!!
the policies in Kuwait now are nothing but anti expat policies..
separate hospital timing for expats
separate clinics for expats
medical fees for expats despite every expat being forced to pay useless medical insurance fees..
deportation for petty issues as well.. traffic offences.. cutting grass from road.. private prayer gatherings etc are all deportable offences
and now, road tolls - despite most roads including almost all highways are bumpy and ill maintained
and still claims humanity and expat care.. cmonn..!!!

Just as I expected!!! This toll also will be only for expat vehicles and not on citizens...Tomorrow, they will implement toll/tax on expats for walking on the roads/streets, so that they will justify it is for construction/maintaining new roads, etc. I don't know what mentality Kuwait MPs have got!!! Squeezing the neck of expat to extract money for the citizens to live!!! These MPs are really lunatics and as a result will only affect the car market business. If toll is implemented, it should be implemented on everyone using those roads regardless of nationality (including citizens).

Finished with hospital & clinic charge and focusing on road charge. Once and all focus on what all charges going to be implemented. On the other side speaking to withdrawing license of expatriates, I feel now it will not be the case they will charge issuing more license so they can collect more charges from us. What an idea sirjee???????
